so it's goodbye from me and on BBC One

so it's goodbye from me and on BBC One we now join the

:00:00.:00:00.

Good evening and welcome to BBC Look North. The headlines tonight. Plans

:00:00.:00:11.

to breed dogs for animal testing are rejected after thousands of

:00:12.:00:26.

objections. I am over the moon. The row over a wreath ` why some say

:00:27.:00:30.

this tribute was only left for political gain. A turbulent year in

:00:31.:00:34.

charge ` but has Alan Hardwick made any difference to policing in

:00:35.:00:41.

Lincolnshire. Never heard of him. He is an MP? Is there a craze for the

:00:42.:00:53.

over`60s to get tattoos? And a detailed look at the weather.

:00:54.:01:06.

Hello. A company that wanted to breed hundreds of dogs for animal

:01:07.:01:11.

research in East Yorkshire has hit out at protesters who are claiming a

:01:12.:01:17.

victory tonight. The plans for a breeding centre at Grimston near

:01:18.:01:19.

Withernsea were unexpectedly rejected by East Riding councillors

:01:20.:01:22.

this afternoon against the advice of their own planning officers.

:01:23.:01:30.

Councillors were worried villagers would be regularly disturbed by

:01:31.:01:34.

animal rights protestors. Linsey Smith reports. Celebrating a

:01:35.:01:41.

decision they say is the right one. Protests in Beverley were peaceful

:01:42.:01:44.

today. Most attendees were villagers from the quaint hamlet of Grimston

:01:45.:01:47.

where the animal breeding facility would have been based. Absolutely

:01:48.:01:58.

delighted for the residents that the quality of life is not going to be

:01:59.:02:01.

further hampered by this development. Wonderful news. We have

:02:02.:02:10.

lived next door to B for 40 years. It has been a big struggle living

:02:11.:02:17.

next to an enterprise like that. Animals being bred more intensively

:02:18.:02:21.

in the same area would have meant more visits by lorries, all sorts of

:02:22.:02:26.

things. B Universal already have premises

:02:27.:02:30.

in Grimston. They buy puppies in and rear them until required by medical

:02:31.:02:36.

research labs. They hoped to breed dogs onsite in the new extension.

:02:37.:02:40.

The If this had been approved B would have been only one of two

:02:41.:02:44.

companies in the UK breeding dogs for medical research. Home Office

:02:45.:02:47.

figures show that last year more than four million animals were

:02:48.:02:50.

experimented on in the UK with just over 3,000 beagles used. B say

:02:51.:02:56.

following today's decision they will have to think long and hard about

:02:57.:03:05.

their next step. This could include making an appeal, breeding on site

:03:06.:03:08.

without the extension or close down completely and relocate elsewhere.

:03:09.:03:15.

Third option is that we will close and go to a more progressive

:03:16.:03:24.

authority in this country or abroad. It was a lot of work for local

:03:25.:03:26.

contractors lost. Campaigners here may be declaring

:03:27.:03:29.

victory, but it's unclear whether the battle over this site is over

:03:30.:03:33.

yet. Linsey, how big is the animal

:03:34.:03:38.

research industry? It is huge. It is a multi`million

:03:39.:03:43.

pound industry. The number of animals experimented last year rose

:03:44.:03:47.

in the UK by a quarter of a million, despite the government spending

:03:48.:03:51.

millions to try and find alternatives. Last night, we had,

:03:52.:04:00.

Professor ` ` last night we heard from a professor. Planning

:04:01.:04:07.

permission being refused today will not stop animals being tested on,

:04:08.:04:10.

not only because the law demands for medicines, but because there are

:04:11.:04:14.

plenty of suppliers, particularly overseas, who are happy to breed

:04:15.:04:19.

animals for this purpose. On the programme yesterday we looked

:04:20.:04:22.

at the alternatives to testing on animals, and we had a huge response

:04:23.:04:24.

from you. In a moment: Why there was a musical

send off for Hull's City of Culture team as they present their bid to

the judges. The United Kingdom Independence

:05:22.:05:24.

Party is being criticised after a wreath with the party's logo was

:05:25.:05:34.

left at a Lincolnshire war memorial. A number of South Holland district

:05:35.:05:37.

councillors have complained that UKIP tried to use the remembrance

:05:38.:05:40.

service in Spalding for political purposes. The leader of UKIP in

:05:41.:05:43.

Lincolnshire says his members were not responsible for the wreath.

:05:44.:05:47.

Here's Tim Iredale. This was the week when the nation

:05:48.:05:51.

fell silent to remember those who died in conflict. But out of the

:05:52.:05:57.

thousands of poppy wreaths laid at ceremonies across the country, one

:05:58.:05:59.

in particular has caused some controversy. It was placed at

:06:00.:06:04.

Spalding's war memorial and bears a UKIP rosette. Some believe it wasn't

:06:05.:06:13.

appropriate. They are a new party with new members, and I am taking it

:06:14.:06:16.

they just did not think about what the implications were, something

:06:17.:06:22.

which the National Day of coming together to commemorate the dead and

:06:23.:06:25.

people who have suffered through the war, and it is completely

:06:26.:06:29.

inappropriate to use it for any political gain.

:06:30.:06:31.

However, the UKIP group leader on Lincolnshire County Council insists

:06:32.:06:34.

the wreath was nothing to do with his members. I thought this was at

:06:35.:06:45.

first outrageous and a one`off. I have done some chasing around, and I

:06:46.:06:49.

was asked to did it, and none of the ten UKIP councillors were

:06:50.:06:55.

responsible. None of the officers for UKIP in this part of the world

:06:56.:06:59.

were responsible. It now transpires the wreath was

:07:00.:07:03.

laid by one of the councillors who was elected as a UKIP member earlier

:07:04.:07:07.

this year, but has since joined a breakaway group on Lincolnshire

:07:08.:07:09.

County Council. There's been a similar row in Plymouth where UKIP

:07:10.:07:13.

have defended the use of the party logo at a war memorial. Every year,

:07:14.:07:16.

politicians come together to remember our war dead, but they

:07:17.:07:19.

remain strictly not political occasions. Although the charity

:07:20.:07:22.

behind the poppy appeal is non political, the Royal British Legion

:07:23.:07:25.

says it's perfectly acceptable for political, religious and cultural

:07:26.:07:28.

groups choose to personalise their wreaths to identify their act of

:07:29.:07:43.

Remembrance. This a political row that some say has overshadowed the

:07:44.:07:47.

tribute to the fallen and made the act of remembrance memorable for the

:07:48.:08:06.

wrong reasons. A book of condolence has opened for

:08:07.:08:09.

the former Hull FC player Steve Prescott, who died on Saturday.

:08:10.:08:12.

Steve raised half`a`million pounds for charity in seven years after he

:08:13.:08:16.

was diagnosed with a rare stomach cancer. The book is at the Hull FC

:08:17.:08:27.

shop at the KC Stadium. His funeral will take place in his hometown of

:08:28.:08:30.

St Helens on Monday. Inspectors say that the East Riding

:08:31.:08:33.

Community Hospital in Beverley has now improved. In June, the Care

:08:34.:08:39.

Quality Commission forced the closure of more than half the beds

:08:40.:08:42.

there because of worries about patient care.

:08:43.:08:44.

Police say three people collapsed in Lincoln, possibly after taking legal

:08:45.:08:47.

highs. Emergency services were called to Lincoln city centre

:08:48.:08:50.

yesterday. Two of the people were treated for hypothermia.

:08:51.:08:52.

This was Scunthorpe fire station at ten o'clock this morning. Fire

:08:53.:08:55.

fighters across the region took part in another four hour strike in a

:08:56.:08:59.

dispute with the government about their pensions.

:09:00.:09:02.

People in Lincolnshire have "gold standard" policing. It's the claim

:09:03.:09:06.

of the county's police and crime commissioner Alan Hardwick as he

:09:07.:09:10.

marks the end of his first year in the job. It's been a controversial

:09:11.:09:13.

12 months in which Mr Hardwick suspended his chief constable. His

:09:14.:09:16.

handling of that was described as an "enormous mess" by MPs and as

:09:17.:09:23.

"irrational" by a High Court judge. But Alan Hardwick insists he's

:09:24.:09:25.

making policing better in Lincolnshire. Jo Makel reports.

:09:26.:09:35.

Police and crime commissioners were elected to make the service more

:09:36.:09:42.

accountable to the public. Alan Hardwick says he's spent around two

:09:43.:09:46.

thirds of the last 12 months asking people in Lincolnshire, what they

:09:47.:09:58.

want from the police. I thought it was pretty obvious what the general

:09:59.:10:02.

public want. I mean, the general public want a good police force. And

:10:03.:10:08.

you've got one. More police on the streets. You hardly see a policeman

:10:09.:10:13.

at night, unless he is in his car. It's much easier for me to

:10:14.:10:16.

communicate than it would have been for the police authority. To

:10:17.:10:19.

communicate in a meaningful way and actually get something done. Mr

:10:20.:10:25.

Hardwick has been decisive. Immediately after the election he

:10:26.:10:28.

scrapped controversial plans for new privately run custody suite. But his

:10:29.:10:30.

decisiveness has also caused problems. When he suspended

:10:31.:10:34.

temporary chief constable Neil Rhodes, a court ruled it irrational

:10:35.:10:38.

and perverse. This issue's dominated headlines. He says it hasn't

:10:39.:10:50.

overshadowed his year. So what else has Alan Hardwick been up to? He

:10:51.:10:53.

says he's also spent time visiting Lincolnshire's Police stations,

:10:54.:10:56.

listening to and acting on officers' ideas. One idea was to put livery on

:10:57.:11:03.

PCS overcast. There are new projects on the go he wants to show us. This

:11:04.:11:07.

is a mobile finger printing device, on trial to see if it saves time and

:11:08.:11:12.

resources. It is checked remotely against a national database. The

:11:13.:11:17.

result of that comes back to this device and tells those who the

:11:18.:11:20.

person is. Money is tight. But he says the force is the country's most

:11:21.:11:24.

efficient. He admits it's been a steep learning curve. But so, far

:11:25.:11:31.

Alan Hardwick says he has no regrets.

:11:32.:11:34.

I spoke to Alan Hardwick about his year in charge. I started by playing

:11:35.:11:38.

him some clips from people in Lincolnshire. We asked them if they

:11:39.:11:42.

knew Alan Hardwick, and what job he did. Never heard of him. Alan

:11:43.:11:56.

Hardwick? He is not an MP is free? Is either look North presenter?

:11:57.:12:00.

Here's the police commissioner. The police thing. What difference has

:12:01.:12:09.

been made? I cannot see he has done anything to improve the police

:12:10.:12:18.

force. The commission is with me now. How concerned are you by those?

:12:19.:12:28.

Well, it is fair to say, and I found out myself over the past year, some

:12:29.:12:33.

people couldn't care less who their commissioner is. They choose not to

:12:34.:12:37.

engage, and that is fine. It is what democracy is about. All I want is

:12:38.:12:43.

what I want which is the police to be there when they need them. They

:12:44.:12:48.

do not need to know the names at the top of the organisation. What do you

:12:49.:12:51.

sick your biggest achievement has been? I have engaged in spoken to

:12:52.:12:57.

people across Lincolnshire throughout the past year. I have

:12:58.:13:03.

attended dozens of meetings, and also, visited nearly every one of

:13:04.:13:09.

our police stations and spoken to police officers and staff. I am

:13:10.:13:17.

engaging with people. MPs who investigated the suspension of a

:13:18.:13:20.

chief constable say it damage the reputation of the force. How much if

:13:21.:13:25.

at all to you regret suspended Neil Rhodes? It did not damage the

:13:26.:13:28.

reputation of the force. Crime is down in Lincolnshire. They are

:13:29.:13:41.

motivated officers and staff. That dispute had dominated most of your

:13:42.:13:46.

time in charge. You must agree? It has been a distraction. I will agree

:13:47.:13:51.

with you there. For the last four or five months, nobody has mentioned it

:13:52.:13:58.

at the meetings I have been to. It is not on people 's radar. The

:13:59.:14:10.

policing is more than up to scratch. It is the gold standard.

:14:11.:14:18.

You have to interview the my new suspended next Monday is the only

:14:19.:14:22.

candidate for chief constable. You will probably have to give him a

:14:23.:14:28.

job. It is not unusual for there to be one applicant for a chief

:14:29.:14:32.

constable post. Last time it happened in Lincolnshire, there was

:14:33.:14:49.

one applicant. It is all quite. Questions ` ` it is awkward. Had

:14:50.:14:58.

there been a drag is worn ` ` back a strong relationship between is, it

:14:59.:15:02.

would be, but I can assure you we get on very well and are

:15:03.:15:06.

professional. We do not avoid one another. So what you are saying is

:15:07.:15:17.

he will get the job? I am saying that the process is ongoing, and it

:15:18.:15:24.

would not be appropriate for me to comment any further. Commissioner,

:15:25.:15:33.

thank you. It's Lincolnshire the gold standard of policing? At the

:15:34.:15:39.

police doing a good job where you live And tomorrow on Look North I'll

:15:40.:15:42.

be talking to the Humberside Police commissioner Matthew Grove about his

:15:43.:15:44.

year in charge. ? Thoughts on this.

:15:45.:16:07.

Tomorrow, I will be talking to Matthew go about his first year in

:16:08.:16:13.

charge. Thank you for watching. ?? new line Still ahead tonight: Tattoo

:16:14.:16:17.

parlours say there's an increase in customers over the age of 60. Think

:16:18.:16:28.

what you want. Anybody who thinks, silly devil, so what?

:16:29.:16:34.

Gulls at Hornsea taken by John Frith. Good evening. Kevin said, we

:16:35.:17:01.

know that Paul is always on holiday. This is Tuesday night show turn into

:17:02.:17:06.

a deckchair? This part`time stuff you keep coming

:17:07.:17:11.

out with is damaging. I do for days, more often than not. The headlines:

:17:12.:17:16.

It is cold, windy and sunny tomorrow. You will have to wrap up

:17:17.:17:22.

warm because the wind will be pretty keen. There will be a cold wind,

:17:23.:17:34.

with the bright and cheery day nonetheless. We are looking to the

:17:35.:17:39.

west where this cold front is steadily bringing cloud in, and that

:17:40.:17:55.

will bring some patchy rain. Quite a windy night to come and we will see

:17:56.:17:59.

lowest temperatures down to five or six. Any overnight patchy rain soon

:18:00.:18:29.

sinks away. There will be a keen in the ring north`westerly and the

:18:30.:18:34.

chance of the odd shower. You generally dry day. It will feel a

:18:35.:18:46.

lot colder. The sunshine will cheer us up. It is not looking too bad. A

:18:47.:19:03.

little patchy rain Saturday night, otherwise the weekend is looking

:19:04.:19:05.

fine. Sounded a bit uppity. That is the

:19:06.:19:27.

weather office where you get lots of Lisa Gallagher and Julie Donovan?

:19:28.:19:31.

Yes. Hull's City of Culture team

:19:32.:19:33.

travelled to Londonderry in Northern Ireland today as they look to

:19:34.:19:36.

impress the judging panel which will decide who will win the coveted

:19:37.:19:40.

title of City of Culture for 2017. The team will present their case in

:19:41.:19:43.

Derry tomorrow and will then be vigorously quizzed on what they

:19:44.:19:49.

would do if Hull was successful. Paul Murphy is in Londonderry at the

:19:50.:19:56.

moment. How difficult is the task ahead of them? At the risk of

:19:57.:20:02.

sounding like a racing tipster, the word on the ground here is that Hull

:20:03.:20:07.

and Leicester at the hot favourites. The judges have been keeping a close

:20:08.:20:12.

eye on all of the cities, but they are attaching a great deal of weight

:20:13.:20:15.

and how they perform tomorrow. Fossett is like Hull, who believe

:20:16.:20:20.

they got so much to gain from getting this title, the pressure is

:20:21.:20:26.

really on to perform. As they set off this morning, the bridge team

:20:27.:20:28.

could be forgiven for looking a little nervous. They take with them

:20:29.:20:33.

not just a presentation for the City of Culture judges, was the hopes of

:20:34.:20:42.

an entire city. Hull's hunger for this title is difficult to hide.

:20:43.:20:47.

Hull needs it, wanted, and is ready to deliver. The city has really got

:20:48.:20:55.

behind the bid. Here in Derry, they are coming to odds the end of what

:20:56.:20:58.

many believe has been a transformational year. The community

:20:59.:21:02.

notorious for division has been brought together by arts and

:21:03.:21:07.

culture. It is easy to see the transformation that has happened. It

:21:08.:21:13.

is genuinely transformative. Huge excitement for Hull and the other

:21:14.:21:17.

cities short listed. Delegates from Hull, Leicester, Swansea and Dundee

:21:18.:21:22.

are heading for the city, all striving to convince a panel of

:21:23.:21:27.

judges that they should be crowned City of Culture 2017. The interviews

:21:28.:21:32.

for the competing cities take place in this arts and cultural over the

:21:33.:21:38.

next 48 hours. This is more than a cosy chat over tea and biscuits.

:21:39.:21:43.

There will be tough questions about finance, community impact and

:21:44.:21:47.

legacy. A place cannot produce poems, it can only not prevent

:21:48.:21:54.

them. Hull's newly released film lays bare the city Bozman passion

:21:55.:21:58.

and hunger for the coveted culture cycle. Mission accomplished of

:21:59.:22:04.

Mission impossible? We will know that by next Wednesday, when the

:22:05.:22:08.

government announces the winner. The delegates arriving in a rainy Derry

:22:09.:22:14.

tonight, and at about lunchtime tomorrow the Hull table toddle up

:22:15.:22:18.

the hill and go into that room for a couple of hours to have their bid

:22:19.:22:23.

heavily scrutinised by the judging panel. The hopes and expectations of

:22:24.:22:33.

an entire city around their shoulders. There could be a few

:22:34.:22:36.

sleepless nights tonight. I suspect there will be.

:22:37.:22:42.

Thanks, Paul. The announcement will be made next Wednesday. Now,

:22:43.:22:45.

remember yesterday when we showed you this? Let me tell you something

:22:46.:22:54.

about this city. All of us, we are all just passing through. It's the

:22:55.:22:58.

film for the City of Culture presentation. Well, since going

:22:59.:23:00.

online yesterday, it's been watched more than 30,000 times. Amazing. If

:23:01.:23:08.

you have not seen it, you must watch it. 30,024 hours, or thereabouts ` `

:23:09.:23:18.

30,000 views in 24 hours. Lincolnshire Olympian and former

:23:19.:23:20.

European champion Lizzie Simmonds has lost her funding from British

:23:21.:23:23.

swimming. Money for the sport was cut after it failed to reach its

:23:24.:23:27.

medal target at the 2012 Olympics, where Simmonds finished fourth in

:23:28.:23:29.

the backstroke event. Three primary school children from

:23:30.:23:32.

East Yorkshire won a trip to Florida at an awards ceremony last night.

:23:33.:23:36.

Evie, Latisha and Rebecca from Wilberfoss near Pocklington took

:23:37.:23:38.

part in Humberside Police's Lifestyle awards. They painted a

:23:39.:23:46.

mural and planted a wildlife garden around a new table tennis table in

:23:47.:23:53.

their village. Some tattoo parlours in East

:23:54.:23:55.

Yorkshire and Lincolnshire say almost half of their customers are

:23:56.:24:01.

now over 60. This is the BBC's David Dimbleby ` aged 75 ` getting a

:24:02.:24:05.

scorpion tattoo on his back. Our reporter Simon Spark asks why people

:24:06.:24:20.

are "getting inked" later in life. I have got an anchor. I just really

:24:21.:24:24.

like it. I have got one on my back and on my neck. It just helps me

:24:25.:24:32.

feel connected to the wild and trees and nature. Whatever your reason for

:24:33.:24:36.

having a tad too, we have all heard the warnings that you may regret

:24:37.:24:41.

them when you are older. David Dimbleby has waited until the tender

:24:42.:24:46.

age of 75 before becoming a Scorpion King. It seems he is just part of a

:24:47.:24:49.

recent trend of those new territories for the over 60s. The

:24:50.:24:56.

oldest person I have tattooed is 74. She was a great client. Ken is a

:24:57.:25:12.

typical example. 16 years old, he waited until retirement before

:25:13.:25:14.

getting the inky always wanted. I just think, I am of an age now, I

:25:15.:25:22.

can have the freedom. It is something that when I was younger, I

:25:23.:25:28.

would award about it. Now, I don't care. As we put this theory of the

:25:29.:25:34.

more mature returning to their rebellious youth to the test? This

:25:35.:25:39.

bunch will do. I would not like one, thank you, let it was a butterfly on
